Upcoming events

Staff Appreciation

Our children’s learning environment and educational experiences are enhanced greatly by the work of our school’s teachers and staff. To show appreciation for all they do, staff dinners are organized by the PTO twice per year during conferences. Other small tokens of appreciation are provided to the staff once or twice during the school year. Staff Appreciation is May 2-7. Be on the lookout for more information!


The carnival is held on the second Friday in May. It is a fun-filled event for our school and the greater community that includes concessions, games, and activities. It is both our largest school event and our largest fundraiser. Local businesses provide much-needed support for this event through silent auction donations and sponsorships. The carnival requires the work of a large number of volunteer committees to organize, manage, and run the event. Check out the Carnival page to learn more! Volunteer sign up is coming soon for this fun event!
